More Tropical Thunderstorms To Hit Thailand
Thailand expects more tropical thunderstorms during 4-7 May 2017 while the Greater Bangkok area will likely have normal thunderstorms.
Meteorological Department (TMD) Director-General Wanchai Sakudomchai said the overall weather condition in Thailand this week will remain hot with thunderstorms in some areas, particularly in the lower northeastern, eastern, lower central, and central regions.
A mass of cold air is expected to begin to prevail over Thailand during between the 4th and 7th May, disrupting the current hot weather and resulting in tropical storms which will likely happen on 4 May in the northeastern and eastern regions, and on 5 May in the northern and upper central regions.
The summer storms may cause strong winds, hails, and thunders in some areas, mostly where the temperature exceeds 40 degree Celsius. People in the affected areas are advised not to be in open areas, under big trees, or large billboards during the storms for their own safety.
The TMD Chief has added that the Greater Bangkok Area will have some thunderstorms too but not as severe as the summer tropical storms as normal temperature in the area is currently only at 38 degree Celsius, as so not exceeding the threshold at 40 degree.
